Embarrassing Fruits - "Corner"
Chapel Hill-based rock/pop trio Embarrassing Fruits will release thier debut album, Community/Exploitation, on March 24. To hype it they have released debut single "Corner" and made it available as a free and legal download. It's a relatively mellow but engaging tune, and I'm fond of both the guitar riff and horns. Heavy shades of the classic Merge sound here, with vocals reminiscent of Stephen Malkmus.
